During the height of the 2021 pandemic, Age UK Cheshire received funding to produce 2 issues of a magazine, called Connect Magazine, intended to help older people to stay connected online.

It was to include handy guides to getting online, interviews and case studies from service users and celebrities showing how useful the internet could be in staying connected and combating loneliness.

It was also to showcase the ways AgeUK Cheshire projects and services had pivoted into the online world during the 2020 lockdown so they could continue reaching their service users.

I was delighted to be asked to work with their editorial team to design and layout the publication.
